Tori Weston

Creative writing has always been the vehicle I used to express myself. Place, plot, and character was the way I tried to make sense of the world around me. Words and punctuation on the page was the only visual art I thought I was capable of but working on a story led me to put the drawings I made in the margins of notebooks to larger pieces of paper. Stories began to form not just in words but in images. The goal of my work, both writing and art, is to do what a writing instructor used to say at the start of every class. Our work must 'illuminate what it means to be human.'
